Naniwa Chosera #800 with Stand and Nagura
Naniwa Chosera have one of the highest regard synthetic stone among all and is recommended by many professional knife sharpeners due to its excellent performance. They are splash and go stones that do not require soaking, fast cutting, bites knife really well and can sharpen knives with 67 Hrc. The stone itself are hard and does not bevel easily. It came with a big nagura that can use for refresh the stone surface and also a little bit of flattening.
Do know that new stone surface has a layer of protection that need to be removed using the nagura ( dressing stone ) provided, a good 10 strokes from top to bottom on the sharpening surface (the one without logo) should be good enough. Do the same when you feel the stone performance is dropping. It will help refreshing the stone surface.
800 grit : Similar performance to #1000 but at a cheaper price. Praised by many as the best medium stone for its high performance.
Great recommendation by our partner Torrez K-Sharpening.
